Riva IC Install
Anyone else have a hard time when they install their Riva IC? I spent 3 hours last night getting mine installed becasue the metal pipes that connect to the intake and supercharger would not seat properly. I had to un-strap the IC slide it back get everything lined up and then re-strap it all in. Talk about a pain! I am actually sore today from the install!

The First Time I Tryed To Install The Riva Cooler I Had Extra Troubles, Because I Am Running The Stock Exhaust. If You Did It In 3 Hours Than You Had A Good Install. I Spent About 3, 3-4 Hour Nights With My Install. Although I Had Alot Of Extra Time In Getting The Stock Exhaust Hose To Work, And It Took Me Along Time To Decide Where To Put The Strainer.
Worth The Time And Effort, Because I Think That I Could Do It In No Time Now!!!

Well its good to hear that 3 hours we not to long comparably I found that the IC was sitting to far forward on the bracket and this made it difficult to line up the pipes. I have no idea how anyone could ever install the IC while its strapped to the bracket as the exit pipe is 1/2 way under the footwell. Suffice to say I am very happy with the install as the pipes are all lined up perfectly so airflow should be very good.

I have my IC front edge mounted flush to the front edge of the bracket. I was not sure how you were able to get those straps secured with it in the ski, those things are a real pain.

Yeah I had mine flush mounted too and it was sitting to far forward. I moved it back about 1/2 an inch and everything fit together perfectly.
For removing the straps what I did was unhook them and leave them attached via the inlet/outlet water fittings. Made my adjustments got it all lined up and installed the air outlet fitting. Then I grabbed one S hook and pulled on it really hard until I could hook it. Did the same thing a 2nd time and it was all set. I think thats why my arms are sore becasue it took alot of muscle to pull them rubber straps.

Thanks for the tip on the straps, I will try that if I have to pull it out sometime.
